day. andrea mitchell live in washington where president obama is surrounded by uniform police and is now issuing dire warnings about the consequences if automatic budget cuts, the sequester, will create job losses and a setback to the recovery if that goes into effect next week. in response senate republican leader mitch mcconnell still prefers campaign events to -- joining me now for our daily fix, chris calizza and managing editor of post politics.com. well, chris, we saw the performance at the white house. this was a set piece, if you will. the instant response from mitch mcconnell. the bottom line is neither side is negotiating. the white house now assumes the sequester is going to go into effect. is this going to be worked out by continuing resolutions by the end of march? a little bit of short-term pain, long-term gain? >> yep. you know, andrea, i think performance on both sides is the right word. look, i think the policy debate over whether a deal with get done between now and march 1st to avert the sequester is over. congress is away for the president's day week. when
but mess things up. yes, if you can believe the g.o.p. presidential obama is responsible for pretty much everything that's wrong in washington, d.c. today including the traffic. from refusing to reach out across the aisle to the sequester that threatens to disembowel the federal government with $1.2 trillion in spending cuts starting a week from this friday, it is all obama's fault. though if you can believe the president, imagine this now, let me stretch your credulity here, the president wasn't entirely to blame. >> obama: the whole design of these arbitrary cuts was to make them so unattractive and so unappealing that democrats and republicans would actually get together and find a good compromise. unfortunately, congress didn't compromise. >> john: mr. obama at least seemed logical to compromise with republicans. >> obama: i am willing to cut more spending that we don't need. get rid of programs that aren't working. i've laid out specific reforms to our entitlement programs. >> john: now if you're like me you just heard the president offer to cut spending and reform entitlement progr
was going to lead the administration that he was going back to the state of washington. he was someone i follow closely. he was nominated to be the cia director in 1991, and as an obama supporter, i was shocked to find out that he was going to be kept on as the secretary of defense. what he told people, i found, and it was a major reasoning for why i wanted to write this book, what he said is that we are moving towards a smaller military. one that will do fewer things than be able to go fewer places, which he thought was a terrible thing and he added that he didn't want to be a part of that kind of a system that is going to retrench. my feeling has always been that we need a smaller military that will do fewer things and go to fewer places. so that is the kind of book that i wanted to write. i thought that i should do it even though others have mined a lot of this. i'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the works who wrote things like the american empire and 10 years before that, john neuhaus, one of my favorite new york writers, wrote imperial america. other books have dealt with this.
by barack obama because no matter how badly he might have it with congress, lincoln had it worse. i mean the country just being ripped apart. >> u now, a survey came back saying number one was lincoln, two, washington, three, f.d.r., four, teddy roosevelt, five, truman. now, what do all of these presidents have in common? and what does that tell us about where president obama might ultimately end up? >> all of them have a huge amount of self k69s. they believe in their own gain. you also have to communicate well with the exception of true man, who wasn't that good with media, you know, theodore ro roosevelt was extremely good with cartoonists and novelists and poets. lincoln, writing such eloquent pieces as, you know, the gettysburg address, able to communicate the emotions of the time to the american people. washington was different because he was first: wae wa came in and didn't know what foreign policy he should be. should he be doing business with britain? he didn't know how to organize government. that's why washington usually follows lincoln as number two. >> now, even republicans
? >> well, the short answer is not anything that comes from president obama. >> a chain of fierce politicking is under way. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. >> there is no leadership on the other side of the aisle. >> the president really doesn't want immigration reform. >> with the president in the republican's cross hairs over immigration. >> the obama plan, a backup plan. >> with the level of hostility from the president, i think it is very hard to imagine that his bill is going to pass the house. >> the president has never really had great luck in congress. >> if the president proposes legislation, do you think it will fail? >> of course, of course it will. >> with no other explanation given? >> of course it will. >> congress has not been very productive in the last couple of terms. >> they do wait until the last couple of minutes. >> the so-called sequester. the blame game is under way. >> the president who designed the sequester. >> everybody is blaming everybody. >> here is my belief, let's take obama care and put it on the table. obama care is destroying he
peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. >> reporter: meantime in washington, president obama plans to speak with congress this weekend to avert another crisis. but both sides are ramping up the blame game. listen to what the president said about the looming sequester during a press conference yesterday. >> i never think that anything's inevitable. we always have the opportunity to make the right decisions. my hope is is that we can see a different course taken by congress. this should be a no-brainer. >> reporter: solutions the president is confident will work. but unless he can cut a deal with congress, alex, we could see drastic changes kick in this time next week. >> all right, michelle frandsze thank you for that. >> joining me now with reaction republican congresswoman marcia blackburn. representative blackburn, nice to have you back to the show. >> good to be with you, laenale >> the president says this is a no-brainer and says the congress can stop the sequester at any time. how do you respond to that? >> well, i find it all very interesting. because we didn't ha
." exploring the lives of the women who served as first lady from martha washington to michelle obama in a first of its kind profit for television. season one begins at 9:00 eastern and pacific. watch the program earlier in the day live at 2:00 eastern on c- span. host: here in washington we have david winston adn from new york city steve mcmahan. thank you to both of the. as we look at the state of the union, what do you think about the tone? what about the term of the president's delivery ended the way he was saying his message? guest: i think he did what many presidents do in the state of the union address, he laid out an agenda for the future. those things tend to be kind of a list. then he built to a crescendo at the end on having a vote on the gun-control measures that he has introduced. i thought it was a terrific state of the union address that did lay out the agenda. republicans know what it is he would like to accomplish. american people know what is at stake. now we will see if congress is willing to act. guest: you had the inaugural and the state of the union. he laid out
in washington is going just the way the democrats hoped it would. republicans defending the wealthy again. president obama out there for the middle class. how can it be so good? >>> also how much have we heard from republicans since the election about how they know they need to change? don't worry, we got the message they keep telling us. check out the names of the next month's conservative political caucus. pailin, lapierre, santorum, newt. i could go on with all these names. >>> later, it feels a bit like the new improved edsall, doesn't it? how the media machine turned a tongue in cheek joke by a reporter into a deliberately misleading story that chuck hagel talked to a nonexistent group called friends of hamas. never happened. no such group. >>> let me finish with a new bipartisan push for marriage equality. this is "hardball," the place for politics. the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. let's say you pay your guy around 2% to manage your money. that's not
in the "washington post" obama ruse. it's not that different from what rubio's group is talking about. but republicans can slam obama's plan as some sort of kenyan socialist inspired abdication of sovereignty. >> that's a good one. will laugh at that a week. >> they can blast the provisions on boarder security as laughable. they can describe the absence of a real plan for reforming the legal immigration process as slapdash or unserious or whatever they want to call it. so if the president really wants immigration reform to pass one of the most helpful things he could do is put out his own plan as decoy to draw republican fire while the senate works on bipartisan consensus, which looks suspiciously like what just happened. >> i said when rubio went on fox and other shows,it was a kabuki dance. marco rubio's plan is a great plan, look what he's doing and ignored he's doing it at 95% of what the president is doing. i'm fine. whatever gets you through the night, awesome. but let us not pretend that one of these plans is much different than others because it's just not. >> no, it's not. it

anybody participate in politics? why would we come to washington? some of these people -- this obama guy has tons of influence. so we all have influence. you can think about that, we all have an equal influence, and the court rejected that idea. increasingly, because the court has rejected the quality rationale, or form arguments which are primarily in my view at least at the academic level based on equality, themselves or disguise themselves in the corruption argument, and as a result they further confuse. they talk about it being corrective -- corruptive. when you look at that actual legislation were ideas get ground into legislation, often times equality all has something to do with it. we have to stand by your ad provision. brad smith and i approve this message because you idiots could not figure out that the campaign was approved by me. that is how i would do my disclaimer if i were running. why was that there? the congressional effect -- record is very clear. they thought it would reduce the attack ads on them, reduce negative adds, and you saw a lot feingold n the mccain- amendmen
